My reflection is from The White Book:
Jesus said: “The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the additional five. He said, ‘Master, you gave me five talents. See I have made five more.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come share your master’s joy.’” (Mt 25:20-21)
“This simple parable about a master who entrust his money to his servants, and then comes back for some accountability, applies to everyone.
Every gift that I have belongs to God, and I am to use that gift on behalf of God. To realize and truly believe that everything belongs to God can have tremendous implications.
To believe this and to put that belief into practice will make all the difference in the world.
When I die, God will ask me: “What did you do with the gifts I entrusted to you to use on my behalf?””
Let us pause and think about how we use the gifts that have been given to us by God
